Well guys, after a VERY long hiatus.. I'm back. Sorta...

Unfortunately, as most of you knew already, modding is no longer an interest of mine... I've grown up, in school, have a full time job, and may have a baby on the way..

With a heavy heart, I am forced to close this mod forever... Unless another mod team steps up. (MORE THAN ONE PERSON)

That being said, I'm uploading everything I have created with a single disclaimer..

All of it belongs to Microsoft.

Well, they put the link for Microsoft's so-called 'Game Content Usage Rules' and all that, so maybe no. But then microsoft could just do this: We can revoke this limited-use license at any time and for any reason without liability to you.

Man, real cool mod. It still have some fails, but i played a lot of times and is great! A suggestion. I played halo few times in xbox, i don't have the game, but i love the history of the halo universe. Well, here come the suggestion. In the trailer deliver hope,of Halo Reach, in the combat scenes, we could see something like an armour or exo esqueleton fighting in the side of the USNC. Sure that someone knows the name of the unit, i love that you put this unit in a next version :P if this is possible, of course...

It is called the cyclops in halowars. It was a mining suit originally I believe. It has them in the book "Fall of Reach" as well.
